This is one of my favourite recipes with truffles. I am not usually a sweet tooth but there is something so delicious about the combination of flavours with the dark chocolate and creamy goodness that go so well with black truffle. This is easy to adapt to your preferred tiramisu recipe but it is a good guideline to start with.
NOTE: Infuse eggs and mascarpone with black truffle 1—3 days prior to making

- 150 grams butter melted (approx)

METHOD Makes 30
Mix wine biscuits and melted butter. Press into muffin trays and chill
Beat eggs with the sugar then cook gently over hot water whisking continually. Cool a little and beat into the mascarpone. Add truffle and beat. Cool
Chocolate mousse (your favourite choc mousse recipe ) or…
Melt chocolate over boiling water and cool a little, beat the egg yolks and sugar and add to chocolate, whip cream and fold into chocolate mix. Let cool but not set.
Spoon or pipe truffle cream into shells then dollop a generous amount of mousse on top. If the shells break don’t worry just serve in a little jar as a deconstructed version 😉
Let chill before serving.
